Pastor’s Report – Action Items
Annual Council Reports: All council liaisons must submit their annual report to the church secretary by
12/11/14 for preparation of annual congregational meeting in January 2015.
A motion was made to approve the Pastors report by Diane Bursey and seconded by Pat Quelhorst.
The motion was unanimously approved.
Congregational Retreat: Details finalized for 11/23/14 visioning retreat.
Call Committee: Communications prepared to congregation for call committee applicants. Anyone
interested must formally apply by completing the bio form by 12/7/14. Council will review all
applicants during December 2014 council meeting.
2015 Budget: The final budget changes were discussed. The final approval will be discussed in the
December council meeting.
Altar Flowers: Diane Bursey completed the altar flower assessment. Due to the change in church
secretaries earlier this year, a few members were not notified that they needed to submit their
payment. They will be immediately notified so collection can be made. Also, a note explaining the
process will be added to the 2015 flower schedule so all that sign up will know when/how to submit
payment. This should resolve any discrepancies moving forward. Congregation needs to understand
that when no one signs up or when the person that signed up does not submit payment; the money
will be taken from the general fund to cover the expense.
